sun on a vase
from my mother’s home
in the room where I write
she often asked,
“Are you writing?”


Poems For Review

Daily writing prompt
When is the last time you took a risk? How did it work out?

I remember when I first began sending my poems to editors for review.

Time Of Singing was one of the first print journals to publish my work. The new Spring 2023 issue begins their Volume 50, which is a wonderful achievement. Lora Homan Zill is editor.

Acrostic, Tanka, and Haiku

nspiration and


trusting God
a little more
with my questions
fog rests
on Spring fields

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me
